Sri Lanka beat India in bilateral blind cricket series


It has been raining heavily across Sri Lanka. But that has not dampened the spirits of the blind cricket team of Sri Lanka. They just beat world champions India for a 2-1 in the bilateral cricket series at Sri Lanka.

The 40-over match witnessed a remarkable show by blind cricketers from both the sides. Sri Lanka showed their expertise in batting, bowling and fielding as well!

The first match was taken over by Sri Lanka after deputy skipper Dinesh Mathugama got a hat-trick. They had a two wicket win in the game.

For the second match, the fields were soggy due to heavy rains. Hence, the game was reduced to 20 overs each which was yet again won by Sri Lanka in their home ground.

Since the Indian team did not want to go back home empty-handed, they managed to take over the third and final match. They recorded a 68 run win in the last match.

All the players put up an exceptionally brilliant performance in the three matches.
